La Jolla Playhouse dedicates ‘Molli and Arthur Wagner Walk’

In a ceremony held Monday, Sept. 26, a newly-designated walkway was unveiled in honor of Arthur Wagner, founding chair of the UC San Diego Department of Theatre and Dance, and his wife, Molli. About 50 people witnessed the ribbon-cutting ceremony that took place adjacent to the walk, which runs from the parking lot to the entrance of the La Jolla Playhouse, at 2910 La Jolla Village Drive, on the UCSD campus. The speakers praised the Wagners as true patrons of the arts and remembered the late Arthur (who died in 2015 at age 92) with anecdotes and stories.

For the event, the walk was embellished with patio-like furniture and a series of signs sporting photographs of the couple that chronicled their lives and contributions to the arts.
